Tuto Tribe is a samba rock band (5-piece at its core) based in Southampton in the UK. Brazilian extrovert, Tuto, and his tribe of musicians perform joyful, fun-fuelled and interactive shows with their modern, bright Brazilian sound with catchy, sing-along hooks and rhythms influenced by samba, rock, Jamaican music and jazz. We describe our music as the virtual offspring of Samba Rock pioneer Jorge Ben, The Doors and Manu Chao, with songs written about love, life, travel and world citizenship. Formed in early 2022 around Tuto's original songs and his close musical relationships, Tuto Tribe has played at several festivals (including Victorious and Tropical Pressure), is resident at Revolucion de Cuba Southampton and regularly plays in different cities across southern England. The multi-national Tuto Tribe comprises Tuto (Brazil, lead vocals and guitar), Rich (UK, alto sax), Blair (Canada, tenor sax), Mike (Cyprus, bass) and the heart-beat of the band, Herman (Brazil, drums). As quoted by a tribe fan, 'Tuto Tribe makes you feel like you're on a holiday you never realised you were going on'. Come and see, dance, singalong, and make up your own mind! Let's Samba Rock It!
